Client: London Borough of Lambeth
Parts of Myatts Field North estate were refurbished in the 1990s, but it was still failing to meet the needs of residents and more strategic estate regeneration was required.
Lambeth Housing was promoting the redevelopment as a PFI project and, with Lambeth Planning, saw the need for planning guidance to be in place, to inform the PFI process and also to give the masterplanning work planning status.
Tibbalds worked closely with both departments to test a range of masterplan scenarios for the estate regeneration in terms of design quality, sustainability and economic viability. We consulted with local people through workshops and focus groups, helping to build support for the emerging proposals.
We produced Development Planning Guidelines for the site, setting out specific design requirements for planning purposes, which were adopted by the Council as an SPD.
Subsequently Tibbalds helped evaluate bidders masterplan and design proposals for the project and coordinated the masterplan evaluation panel made up of residents, officers and other stakeholders.
